The Snowdrop

The snowdrop is a plant that so many of us know and love.  It is one of the first to flower in the early days of the new year, gracing our winter gardens.  While one snowdrop might look much like another to the untrained eye, beyond the common snowdrop there are endless varieties to uncover.

The snowdrop's origins in this country are as interesting as its cultivation.  This emblematic flower's native home is the mountains of central and southern Europe - its delicate display of hardy beauty ensured its appeal and transport to our shores several hundred years ago.

In The Living World Brett Westwood goes beyond the garden-dwelling snowdrop and visits Snowdrop Valley on Exmoor where carpets of snowdrops go wild, filling the sheltered moorland valleys.
